I've actually found that VS Code is way more resource hungry than Webstorm. After loading up a large project I'm working on Webstorm consumes about 700MB of memory whilst the same project in VS Code consumes 1.3GB of memory.

Huge fan of Webstorm to be honest. So many things just work nicely out of the box.

Agreed. Once WebStorm finishes indexing then it knocks every ball out of the park. No competitions 💪
